From Debbie G. in Florida.

Proud owner of Merfe.

  Merfe has become a loving member of our family. He has changed the outlook of everyone. My mother who is depressed laughs and smiles for the first time in 10 years. My husband has forgotten he has cancer. 

Merfe has  a wonderful temperament and is the sweetest dog our family has ever had. He is also one of the smartest. It is scary how smart he is. We got Merfe a Tell Bell to ring when he needed to go outside. The manual said it could take weeks or up to a few months for the dog to get the idea and ring the bell .Merfe learned it in 4 days.

He is amazing.

Hi Dorthe, hope all is well!


Boone is doing great, believe it or not, he’s now 6.5 pounds!  He’s such a sweet & clever boy.   We all just love him 😍


He’s started puppy school and is not only one of the smallest, but also the most confident.  He learns very quickly and is very eager to please.


Thank you again for encouraging us to consider a Hunt Terrier - we are so happy with little Boone 😀

Hi Dorthe,

Patches is home and doing fine. I sure missed her today. When I went to pick her up this afternoon after her spaying and micro chipping, her vet was sitting holding her just like a baby. She is so sweet and I'm so happy we adopted her. She sleeps in our bed at night but she will sleep in the cage for tonight (maybe). I'm sure she'll want in the bed though and I don't want her to get lonely. I want you to know how happy I am you chose me to be her new mom. I could never give her back.

Again thanks to you both.

Maze is just amazing, she starts puppy kindergarten next week (it was delayed with the lockdown). She is so easy to live with and is such a happy puppy, just a joy to have around! I also have her spay booked for March, I have her booked in for an ovary-sparing spay with a highly-respected vet in our area.

Thinking of adding  a Russell Terrier puppy to your family?  I wouldn't hesitate to tell anyone to check out Dorthe and Randall's puppies.


I first met River in November 2019 and was greeted by her friendly mother and then  River and the rest of her littermates came running into the room.  They played with me for a while and River ended up falling asleep in my arms.


I picked River up two days before Christmas.  She adapted to my home quickly and was super easy to housetrain.  River has the friendliest personality of all the terriers I have owned.  This is due to the way Dorthe breeds her dogs.  I know sound temperaments are important to this breeder.  I follow several of the dogs Dorthe has raised on social media and it appears those dogs have the same temperament as my girl.


Many times I have been asked if I will sell River to someone I have met.  The answer is NO she is staying with me.


River is a happy dog, always looking forward to meeting someone new and has her tail held high and is very confident.  This is all due to knowledgeable breeding and a love of this breed.  


If you are thinking of a Russell Terrier, then Dorthe has the friendliest and healthiest puppies you can purchase.  Your new best friend is waiting for you here.  

Hard to believe a week has gone by! Just wanted to tell you I love him more this week than last♥️ He is like medicine to everyone I know including me❤️
I am transitioning Guinness to ‘Open Farm’ humanely & sustainably sourced puppy recipe food. It is a healthy blend of humanely raised chicken, wild- caught salmon & natural superfoods🤗
I thank you from the bottom of my heart for this little guy💝
